When I started thinking about creating a blog, I quickly got several ideas for posts.  Unfortunately, none of them was an idea for a first post.

But I still need one, don’t I?

I’ve been painting on and off since my early teens, but it’s only been in the last year or so that I started to get serious about it.  This blog is a first step in building an online presence, preparatory to selling my art.  It’s a way of testing the waters, interacting with other artists and art lovers, and seeing what they’re interested in.

I also hope that writing about the creative process and making it public will keep me accountable and motivated.  Even when I’m not inspired (but that’s for another post).

When I get the chance, I also enjoy hiking.  I live pretty close to Banff, Canmore, and Kananaskis Country.  Last winter I tried ice climbing, and really enjoyed it.  The mountains aren’t just a source of inspiration; they’re the subjects of many of my paintings.  So, it makes sense to post about my outdoor adventures too.

I’m planning on updating this blog at least twice a week, with extra posts if I finish more paintings.  This should be manageable even if my summer turns out to be an especially busy one.

Thanks for reading!  Glad to have you with me.
